Worried about child's eyesight?

Hello,
Are you worried your child has amblyopia (lazy eye) or strabismus (squint)? Then you might be interested in the ASTEROID project of Newcastle University. The Asteroid research team is currently developing a new method of detection and treatment.
Asteroid is a 3D vision test on a glasses-free 3D tablet into the form of an interactive game. This makes your child's eye test fun whilst giving clinicians accurate data on your child's vision.
More information about this test is available at this link
research.ncl.ac.uk/asteroid/
or look for Asteroid- Newcastle University on Facebook and twitter.
We would greatly appreciate any feedback on this method and if you are available/ near the Newcastle- Gateshead area, there is an upcoming event on the 27th June at the Great North Children's hospital when you can try Asteroid for yourself, see www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/services/21087.aspx
